Our recent Meetup held at Lab49 in London on 3rd February focused on Data Science Approaches & Toolsets, and included some excellent talks from our speakers; Eugene Morozov from Lab49 and Stelios Gerogiannakis from RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland), both industry experts in Data Science in the financial sector.

Eugene from Lab49, presented a demo as part of his presentation on the performance testing use case where R based toolset gets integrated into a performance testing framework to detect anomalies in software performance testing data. You can access the source code for the anomaly detection demo here on GitHub; https://github.com/cadmiumkitty/cucumber-jmeter-r-integration and and a brief outline of the talk on his blog; https://emorozov.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/anomaly-detection-in-software-performance-testing/

Stelios’ talk focused on the use of new NoSQL technologies to unlock previously untapped business value in the newly formed Digital & Engineering Services division of RBS. Using open-source graph database Neo4J, he is rolling out a micro-services framework and developer tooling across the entire RBS group.
